>> the game is awesome. steph closed it out. he's the man. >> reporter: for a basketball fan what could beat this, watching one of the greatest players of all time perform magic on the court? from the front seat of a vip suite and all without having to pay a dime. so who are these lucky fans and how did they snag a warrior playoff ticket that today sells for more than $1,000 for free? turns out a lot of them are east bay politicians. under a contract with the coliseum complex three premium suites like this one are reserved for the coliseum board of commissioners, the alameda board of supervisors and oakland city council. >> the city owns part of it. that's why we get it. it's not like we're getting a gift. >> reporter: oakland city council member dan cobb says he gives away most of his tickets to local nonprofits, community advocates and to his hard
working staff. >> of course, warriors games are at a premium these days. we give most of the warrior tickets away as well. >> reporter: and it's true. elected officials are required to file forms and we went back to them through january of 2011 and tom cold gave away 182 and kept some for himself. take oakland city council member here against a recent playoff game against the trail blazers. during halftime he posted about it on instagram. according to the data we've compiled, he's been to see the warriors free 36 times in the last year and a half. face value of tickets claimed for himself? $76,000. then there's councilwoman
lynnette mcelhany. she rarely misses a game. she's been 41 times in the last year and a half. face value of her tickets? 125 grand. >> this whole process of giving the tickets to public officials really could give the public reason to distrust the government in oakland. >> reporter: hannah callahan with the center of applied ethics at santa clara university says the tickets are supposed to be used only for public purposes. >> this is a public resource, so this would be like using a city vehicle to take your family on vacation. >> reporter: the purposes listed in the city policy include rewarding a city employee, a community group, school or student. unfortunately we found politicians often using tickets for themselves instead with excuses like reviewing contribution of facility, that's guan's favorite and oversight of facilities. mcill hanie uses that one --

of course, kenny, we'll follow up on that. >> is this just for the oakland coliseum? is this the arena? >> of course, that got things going, but we made some phone calls, found there was no luxury seats for elected officials at at&t park or levi stadium, but san diego is, in fact, dealing with a similar issue in its stadium and the mayors are now calling for some reform. >> i think you'd be willing to meet with the council members if they call after seeing this. >> we'd love to. back to tonight's game, dennis o'donnell is at oracle arena tonight. dennis? >> reporter: thank you, elizabeth. perhaps even more impressive than the warriors 73 wins this season is the fact they have not lost back to back games all season. that streak continued tonight against okc in western conference finals. now steph curry is not going to let his team take another one on the chin against oklahoma city, but the mvp took one
